In the Christmas school holidays during my high school years, I worked in a Department Store and now with money of my own I spent my first pay packet buying a wide straw hat ready for our annual holiday on the Gold Coast. My mother approved of it as it was good sun protection but I always felt good in this hat. It was a sad day when too much sun & surf tattered the straw.
Perhaps worn by a family member, a celebrity a Royal or your own personal headwear, what was you favourite hat you remember when growing up?
White straw Easter bonnet when I was about 9, worn with yellow dotted Swiss Easter dress, and white patent leather shoes. When I looked at myself in the mirror wearing the hat, I remarked, "I do something for this hat!". That hat was happiness.
